Top 5 Ways to Improve Skin Hydration

The key to glowing and dewy skin is hydration! Your skin looks the youngest and healthiest when it is plump, dewy, and glowing. This is due to retaining moisture in the skin. Hydrated skin goes much deeper than just applying a great topical moisturizer. If you have a healthy skin barrier, it will retain water well. If you have a damaged skin barrier, holding hydration in the skin will be more difficult. Some of the products you are using could also be affecting how your skin holds and maintains hydration. Aside from topical products, there are some incredible treatments that will revive your skin’s hydration levels, and create a healthier skin barrier. In this blog post, we will be going into depth about our top 5 favourite ways to improve skin hydration. 

Volite

One of our favourite ways to improve facial hydration is with our Volite treatment. Volite is an injectable moisturizer filled with cross-linked hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturize your skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body but thrives when we give it an extra boost. Most people know hyaluronic acid as being one of the most important ingredients for maintaining great hydration levels in your skin. How Volite works, is it is injected into the skin and stimulates the fibroblasts deep in the skin. The fibroblasts in your skin are responsible for collagen production and formation. When the fibroblasts are stimulated with Volite, the skin responds by producing more of the proteins in your skin that keep your face looking youthful and glowing. Many people see amazing results after just one Volite treatment. Results can last up to 9 months after the initial treatment, and prolonged results can be seen after repeat appointments. Volite can be injected into the face, chest, and hands to improve overall skin hydration. 

BELA MD Facial

BELA MD facial is one of our favourite all-around treatments for improving overall skin quality. It is a non-invasive facial that provides noticeable results that are natural. The BELA MD facial is a medical-grade facial treatment that includes microdermabrasion, serum infusions, and pore extractions. The BELA MD facial can be personalized to your specific skin needs, and improved hydration is definitely attainable with the BELA MD facial. If you are looking for a facial that will increase hydration, improve tone and texture, clear acne congestion, and lighten hyperpigmentation, you will not be disappointed with booking yourself a BELA MD facial. 

Drink Water

It’s no secret that the human body is made up of mostly water. What this means is that we require a lot more water to function than the majority of us probably get. The easiest way that you can achieve hydrated and glowing skin is to up your water intake. An easy starting goal for this would be to drink 8 cups of water per day. You should drink more than this if you are doing heavy-sweating activities like cardio, hot yoga, high-intensity interval training, weight lifting, or other sports. 

Use Hydrating Products that Work

Products that you use topically when used correctly, can impact how hydrated your skin is. When looking for hydrating products, some important ingredients to look for are Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Panthenol, Polyglutamic Acid, Jojoba Oil, Ceramides and Peptides. Using certain products can actually strip your skin of moisture, so we recommend that you avoid products that contain alcohol, fragrances, sulphates, or artificial dyes. Some of our favourite hydrating products are listed below – and you can purchase them from South Okanagan Laser and Skin center in Penticton, BC. 

Use SPF

Do you know that uncomfortable feeling of tight skin after being out in the sun all day? That’s because your skin got scorched by the sun. Unprotected sun exposure can severely dehydrate your skin. To prevent bad sunburns and permanent sun damage, make sure that you are wearing a broad-spectrum SPF every day and reapplying when you plan on being outside for long periods of time.
